Terry Williams: A Life in the Balance


State-sponsored murder is scheduled for October 3.

by Stephen Lendman

Human life is sacred. Throughout its history, US policy scored it. It shows horrifically in one war after another. It's no different at home at the federal, state, or local levels.

Policy makes human life cheap. Black and Brown people suffer most. Institutionalized racism denigrates them. In capital crime cases, most have virtually no chance, guilty or innocent. Officials don't care if they live or die.

America's death penalty is barbaric. It's the ultimate human rights violation. It's premeditated state-sponsored murder. No true democracy would tolerate it.

US-style justice is rigged to convict. Due process and judicial fairness get short shrift. America's unwanted haven't a chance. Innocent people get executed.

Others wrongfully get life sentences without parole. It's hard deciding which is worse - a living death or the real thing.
